The virgin birth

Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God in the Flesh and also the son of Mary. Because of this singular parenthood, Jesus Christ had the power to lay down his life and then take it up again. "Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father."

If Jesus Christ were 100% immortal at his birth, he could not die. But Jesus Christ did die because he was partly mortal and was resurrected because he was partly immortal. And then through the power of the resurrection, "He being the First that should rise." Jesus Christ's mortality put on immortality and He became 100% immortal and exalted.

That Christ would come from the seed of Eve and of woman only was prophesied in the Garden of Eden, "And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; thou shalt bruise his heel, but He shall crush thy head."
